If you survived the brutally cold winter we're still trying to get over, then you know how powerful Mother Nature can be.

Not that you needed it, but here's another reminder.

NASA Astronaut Terry Virts was recently on the International Space Station when he captured a series of thunderstorms rocking central Africa. You can see by the lights that lightning was flashing like the paparazzi's cameras on the red carpet.

It's a pretty intense umbrella-worthy, rain-soaked scene, for sure.
